Gwen Stacy is anomoly. She didn't exist in this universe until a week ago, much like her alter ego Ghost Spider. A name she adopted because there's actually a Spider Woman and also she's kind of a ghost right? It's all fun, we're fun here, we like to have fun.
* 2001: Gwen is born in Queens to father George Stacy, NYPD patrol officer.
2008: Gwen meets Peter Parker, Harry Osborn, and Mary Jane Watson and forms lifelong friendships that carry all the way to high school.
2012: Learns to play drums on a beat up old drum set her father bought her from a garage sale.
2015: Goes on a field trip to OsCorp and is bitten by a genetically altered spider that gives her super powers.
2015, but later: Becomes Spider Woman for the first time despite only being 14 years old. New York's favorite Daughter. Friendly Neighborhood Spider Woman.
2016: Forms a band with MJ, The Mary Janes. They're not very good.
2016, but later: The Mary Janes get better.
2017: Faces off against The Lizard for the first time. Doesn't yet know the identity of the villain, but notes that he's very familiar to her.
2018: Receives a post graduation scholarship to ESU from OsCorp with an Internship waiting for her post graduation.
2018, but later: Father finds out she's Spider Woman and the pair have a falling out over her hiding her identity from him.
2019: Graduates early from High School along with best friend Peter Parker.
2020, but a few days ago: Finds out that her worst enemy, The Lizard, is actually her best friend, Peter Parker when an accident during one of their battles ends in his death and reverting back to his human form. No trace of his alter ego as the Lizard is present and Spider Woman is blamed for the death. Police on the scene attempt to arrest her which leads to a chase that sees her nearly dying several times. She attempts to hide from capture in OsCorp where R&D have been working on multi-dimensional technology.. a rogue shot from a security guard sends the machine into overload and pulls her into the vortex as it's closing.
2020, but here: Gwen wakes up on the roof of a building, harboring memories that have no value in this universe. Reeling from a death that hasn't even happened and loss that has no foundations. She doesn't know anyone.. which isn't precisely true, as they just don't know her. Everything is very odd.
But that's how comic books work.
Gwen has had her world turned on its ear, lost people close to her and been the target of smear since she was a kid. She feels guilty about every life she can't save, she feels guilty for every loss she's ever faced. Guilt fuels her. Guilt drives her. It's the motivating force behind her selflessness and the reason she'll destroy her personal life for the sake of the city she protects.
Gwen is curious, which isn't a typical attribute of spiders, but nobody's perfect. She's always trying to figure out how things work, it's how she ended up being bitten by a spider that gave her her powers and it's probably a trait she got from her father who was an officer for the NYPD. If there's a mystery to be solved, Gwen is going to be there trying to put the clues together. It's in her blood (not because of the spider thing, though).
There's an inherent fear that comes from being shot at or having some weirdo in a rhino costume try to smear you on the pavement. Gwen leans heavily on her sarcasm and humor to level the playing field. It's a defense mechanism AND a weapon. If she's cracking jokes while she fights, she can control the bubbling terror of what she's doing, make it a comedy rather than a drama, but it also infuriates whoever she's fighting which makes them fight sloppy. So that's always a plus.
A lot of what Gwen does as a hero is because she values 'life' and goes out of her way to protect it. The little guys need a hero, someone looking out for them, and she considers herself a small fish in a very big pond.. It's a world full of masks and capes, so she stays at the Neighborhood level fighting the muggers and keeping the streets tidy (except the webs amirite?).
Fast. Gwen is incredibly fast. Like an Olympic runner or, in some cases, far more so. She can run at about thirty miles an hour if she really digs in, but in a more natural setting, she's well into peak human condition. Flipping, dodging, and running at speeds that make no sense given her body structure, she's a true (spidery) freak of nature.
Someone much more established once said, I can do this all day. Gwen actually can. It's not that she doesn't get tired or hurt, she just heals quickly and recovers more so. Her body is a machine, altered by genetics, and made into a very well oiled machine. She can fight for hours without getting tired. She can take a knife or bullet and heal with in a week. It's like she plugged in a Game Genie and hit up the massive cheat codes. (Nintendo pop culture references are still hip right?)
Gwen's legaments are more like rubberbands and she can bend her body in ways that defy anatomy. She can rotate her shoulders effortlessly with her hands cuffed and twist her limbs in funny angles that make absolutely no logical sense. Couple that with her strength and her agility and she's a decidedly versatile combatant.
Tied into her Spider-Senses is a keen understanding of her surroundings. She knows where everything is around her at a glance and can accurately predict the distances between two points based on rather extensive geometric calculations that happen in her head. It plays a huge part in her web swinging, her fihgting, even her day to day life as a teenager.
Call it fate, call it luck, call it Karma.. I believe something is about to happen. Gwen doesn't tap into some greater cosmic force to predict the events around her, but she does have a keen awareness that supercedes linear reality. She can feel a punch coming before it comes and move acordingly, she knows when a situation is about to get dangerous and act to stop it. This precognative awareness is dubbed the Spider Sense, giving her the image of moving faster than thought. The more she leans into that, the more snappy she seems to be, dodging things that haven't happened, and being where the danger isn't. Long before it ever is. Is Ghostbusters still viable for pop culture references?
After being bitten by the genetically altered spider that gave her her powers, Gwen was augmented with increased strength. Able to lift almost 10 tons under extreme circumstances, she is incredibly strong even when not pushing herself. It allows her to leap great distances vertically, launch herself on weblines, and swing cars back at villains when they're hurled at her. It puts meat on the potato of her punches When Ghost Spider comes swinging, she swings for the fences... in Canada.
Like any RESPECTABLE spider, Gwen is able to climb and walk along most surfaces, including walls, ceilings, you name it. It's a power she makes great use of during her crime-fighting life and to some measure during her normal life too. Because who doesn't like sticky fingers when some klutz just bumps into you and you need to make sure your food tray doesn't go flying?
Gwen is no Reed Richards, but she knows her way around electronics. She built her webshooters when she was fourteen and jail broke her cellphone to use as a hacking device in her crime fighting. She understands machines, she's a Ghost (Spider) in the machines...
Gwen's area of expertise is genetics. She's going to college for it and had a scholarship to ESU from OzCorp. As an intern she was an assistant on the program that produced the Genetic spiders that gave her her powers. So, she's kind of a big brain in that way.
Gwen is a sharp knife. She's smart, top ten percent of anyone her age. It doesn't put her in Tony Stark's league or anything, but she's no slouch. It makes her even more dangerous as a vigilante because she's not just some brute. She can plan, figure, and tactic her way into a dangerous situation without ever having to resort to punch it til it stops moving.
Gwen was in her Ghost Spider costume when she was yanked into this universe, so she carried it over with her. It isn't bullet proof or prevent knives from gutting her, but it looks super flashy and has a hood, which tested well in the teen market. It also allows her free range of motion, the material stretching and twisting as her body needs it to.
Captain George Stacy is Gwen's father, an officer with the NYPD, he is unaware of her identity as Ghost Spider.. and he might be a little over protective of her since she was nearly killed back in December. (This is following the events of Siege of the Spider)
Gwen's webshooters draw moisture from the area and create a semi-solid substance that she uses to swing through New York, globs, nets, all the things. The shooters never need replacing so long as there's any moisture in the area, but can get a little iffy in dry locations.
Gwen is kind of a burden on her father, though he's completely unaware that she's healthy as a horse. He sees her as this injured doll that nearly broke, but in reality it was just a moment for her to slip into this universe as a permanent occupant. He'll drive himself crazy worrying about her, never wanting to see her near death again.
As absurd as it might seem for a person who has nothing to lose, Gwen maintains her secret identity as a rule. It's almost a habit at this point. She knows she will make friends and those friends will be in danger if her rogues eventually find out who she is, so she shouldn't jump the shark by making life difficult for people who may associate with her.
Out of Place:
Gwen is from another universe. Specifically, she's from a Universe where a lot of the things that have happened in this one, didn't happen, or happened in a different way. She truly is out of her league. She has no family here, where Gwen Stacy never existed, and has memories of people here in very different ways. It's confusing and terrifying and puts her on the outside looking in.
Gwen has a whole different set of memories compared to her life here on Earth Prime. She is sync'd with this reality, but that doesn't mean that everything always makes sense to her. She remembers events with Lizard dying, but that event never took place, instead she's putting together a life out of the ruins of a different version of herself and making the best of the situation as she can.
